International Students

At the George Washington University, we’re committed to creating a diverse, global student community and advancing the disciplines of engineering around the world. We are pleased to admit candidates from outside the U.S. to our online graduate degree programs in engineering.

We encourage you to thoroughly review our useful resources and applicant information for international students to determine the materials needed for your application. International applicants should note that, because these programs are offered entirely online, GW and the EMSE Department cannot issue student visas. Time zone limitations should be taken into consideration, as applicants may not be able to attend the required synchronous class sessions. Please contact an Admissions Counselor with any questions.

Scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), the academic International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or the PTE Academic are required of all applicants who are not citizens of countries where English is the official language, with the possible exception of those who hold a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree from an institution in which English is the language of instruction and the official language of the country in which the university is located, or who hold a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree from an institution that is accredited by a U.S. regional accrediting agency.

Minimum Test Scores Required (submit one of the following):

  • Academic IELTS: an overall band score of 7.0 with no individual score below 6.0
  • TOEFL: 600 on paper-based or 100 on Internet-based
  • PTE Academic: 68
